Today is voting day in the UK.
I have always loved elections. When I was young, I was an election “helper”. For many different elections in Africa, I seeded leaflets, visited houses, drove voters to and from voting, and generally assisted “my” Party.
I was a political animal right from the very first time, I saw a dreadful injustice at the age of about ten.
When I asked the grownups around me, how you could stop such things happening. The reply was that people had to change who was ruling in the Government.
As a teenager, my friend, was very politically involved, and I got drawn in too. And as a young married woman, my father in law was the Mayor of the city we lived in for several terms. There were always elections.
My life has been full of memorable election days.
Tonight, I’m loading up with popcorn and crisps, and I will enjoy watching the results of weeks of bear baiting, slander, fake news, vicious hysterical speaking and bias on the BBC. Tonight is the night we will know if ordinary people can see through all the bullshit, and vote the way I did!
Tonight the BBC cannot fudge facts. The people will present the facts TO them. Your vote is a FACT.
It makes popcorn and crisp eating far more fun!
